Default Edius on a 21:9 monitor.

Finally got a 21:9 monitor, an LG 29UM68, which is a 29" panel. I've had to set up a system in a small room on a smallish worktop and couldn't really fit two 16:9s with the audio monitors and video monitor etc. so decided to go for a single UltraWide.

Although I'm only in 2560x1080 as 1440 wouldn't be an option or practical at 29", the workspace and resolution are awesome. I was a bit hesitant on a 29" thinking it would be too small, but I couldn't really go any bigger for my workspace and didn't want to over spend on something that was a bit of a test. The vertical height works out to be a shade under the height of a 24" 16:9 and my initial hesitation was soon wiped out after I seen Edius running.

Here's a web site with a utility that helps to visualise the difference in screen area and height etc. between 16:9 and 21:9 monitors http://www.displaywars.com/24-inch-16x9-vs-29-inch-21x9

I've only had the monitor for less than a day but it only took me about 2 seconds to work out that this is the way to go for a de-cluttered and efficient setup and physical workspace. I'm that sold on it that I'll be looking into a 34 or 37" for my main system, which will also offer a lot more GUI/screen space at 1440.

Edius is awesome in this aspect ratio, and for me personally, negates the use of two 16:9s. My main focus of attention when editing is the timeline and playback monitor and a few other panels such as the bin etc. I open other panels as and when required. I personally find there to be a lot of wasted space on two 16:9s, the timeline view in 21:9 feels just right for me and no dead space or unnecessary open panels justifying the use of the screen space of two 16:9s.

Iv'e just done my first edit on this monitor and it was a real joy. Here's the edit, it's actually an unboxing of the monitor. Although I didn't set out or frame for a 21:9 video, I had shot in UHD and managed to fudge a bunch of shots into a native 2560x1080 project without losing optical resolution, Layouter is amazing.

I have a 34" 21:9 LG, and it is awesome for productivity and software like Edius which needs lots of screen space. I love not having a bezel dividing the screen between two physical monitors, and having complete flexibility over window placement and sizing.

My LG is flat and came out before they introduced a curved version of the same monitor. If I were to buy another monitor today, I would go curved after having used a curved 34" Acer Predator, maybe the LG 34UC98-W with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 Quick Charge.

I have not regretted moving from 2 x 24" Dells to my 32" ASUS. I also worried about the move but now would get a 34 at least with no hesitation. It has enough room to edit without an external monitor if needed and with a preview monitor gives plenty of room which is how I have mine setup now with a 24" 1920x1080 preview monitor.

Yes, the lack of bezels. It may seem like a minor point or something not so obvious, but you immediately feel the benefit from the lack of bezels. I've always pained with bezels in a multi monitor setup, getting their heights exact, getting the angles right, trying to get them flush without a gap etc.

Although I'm not a fan of curved TVs, they're a bit gimmicky with no real benefit if sitting at a proper viewing distance, I can imagine curved monitors at 34"+ would be a great help. You sit a lot closer to a monitor by comparison to a TV, so would feel the benefit of the arc and the geometry compensation toward the edges.

Can't believe it took me so long to do it, I now wish I'd done it way sooner. What monitor are you using Ron.

Looks great. There's a few 1600 21:9s now that'd probably look awesome.
